Science and technology is such a compelling topic, which is brought vibrantly to life through Peter Goes’s mix of stories, facts and icons, his sense of wonder and humour

    1. Youth Services Book Review

      This large format book is an excellent way to browse through the scientific accomplishments of humankind…Goes’s playful graphic art channels the era, and the humanoid people, uniformly lumpen, demonstrate new technologies…this would make a fun gift.

    2. Bob’s Book Blog

      A non fiction large sized book like this is better than 20 web pages for the amount of information it has about inventions and technological change that has happened since the world began…Totally fascinating and essential for school libraries and in the home. My granddaughters already have my copy and are pouring over it.
